The Real Housewives of New York City: Action!

at . Comments

Bravo has learned not to mess with spoiled, rich women from the Big Apple.

Following a few weeks of supposedly contentious contract negotiations, filming got underway today on the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City.

Said a show insider: "The ladies wanted more money, and they're getting it.... Bravo was happy to up their pay since the show makes more money now. The Housewives just had an issue with some of the wording in the contract."

Meanwhile, rumors of a Bethenny Frankel spin-off aren't dead, apparently.

"Bethenny is getting her own show and she may be off Housewives for good come the season after next," said the source.

Will you be sad to see her go?
